In recent years, the photonics and plasmonics communities have aimed to expand their nano-optics toolbox in order to improve light confinement capabilities of nanomaterials and enhance light–matter interactions at the nanoscale. In particular, nanostructured high-refractive index dielectrics have demonstrated the ability to highly confine electric and magnetic fields to subwavelength volumes and tailor light dispersion, while displaying ultralow absorption—compared to metals—when excited below their bandgap energies. As such, new and interesting applications are expected to emerge by exploiting this type of technology.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to highlight articles reporting on novel properties and phenomena of dielectric nanophotonics. It focuses on the fabrication, optical characteristics, and prospective nanophotonic applications of nanostructured dielectrics in the forms of reviews, communications, and academic articles. The topics cover a wide range of research fields, either from the experimental or theoretical points of view, including nanofabrication, enhanced light-matter interaction, nonlinear phenomena, metasurfaces and waveguides, among others.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
